Question About transporting worms

Posted by rjinga middle ga, zone 8 (My Page) on

I'm visiting my parents out of state and just saw a local ad for someone who sells worms here, I'm still checking into this but wondered if I can get some here for a decent price, and can carry them with me home (in a container where they would be kept cool, damp or whatever they needed)

Any reason they would not fare well flying for 4 hours? I guess if someone mails them most likely they would be flown somewhere right?

Any suggestions on what they would require to stay alive, what NOT to use etc.

I don't know the answer to your questions. But, I would definitely advise you to contact the airline that you will use to travel home on. Tell them that you wish to bring some worms along with you and ask if they can be carried on board with you. That way, you probably wouldn't incur a shipping charge for transporting your worms. I don't know if this will help you out or not. But, I hope so. Good luck to you!!

Lol transporting isnt the issue, I'd be scared of the TSA. Maybe if you explain they're for a special fishing event.

When you buy them online they ship them in a breathable cloth bag with some begging and we newspaper strips the usually go priority mail so 2 or three days in transit
like others said check with the airline with the crazy rules nowdays you would hate to leave them behind at the airport
